1. PETA supporters shut down the National Institutes of Health (NIH) director’s keynote speech

2. PETA member shuts down Air France’s bid for more investors

3. PETA activists shut down SeaWorld’s deceptive Rose Parade float
Nineteen PETA activists were arrested at the 2014 Rose Parade for protesting the abuse taking place at SeaWorld’s parks. Ironically, the “orcas” on SeaWorld’s float traveled farther on the Rose Parade route than the real orcas imprisoned at SeaWorld are able to on any given day.
4. PETA supporters shut down a BCBG Max Azria executive’s Q&A session
At the Los Angeles “How to Make It in Fashion” Conference (aka “#FashionistaCon”), two PETA supporters took the mic during a presentation by the chief creative officer of BCBG Max Azria and demanded that the company join the dozens of others that have stopped selling fur and angora wool.
